First write-in! (Sunday, 05/11/06, from noon onwards at Starbucks on New Street) LINK TO BOARD
I went downstairs
and asked for the "naughty-chair" because I was nearly two hours late
I took the place to the right and continued working on deconstructing a Mills & Boon medical romance which I have had lying about unread since 2004 - because I want to learn the craft of styish commercial novel writing at its most effective - not unlike Daily Mirror prose style beating more academic writers.

"Thanks for coming, everyone! The manager has been warned that we'll be back next week -- let's see if he still remembers it then.
I've just finished typing up what I wrote, and it's ended up being about 2100 words (that's with a little bit of editing and expanding), which means I've made my word count for today, yay! I didn't think it'd be quite that much.
It's also a little less rubbish than I expected, which is a bonus!"
